It was hard to get a read on it, because I don't think anyone wanted to rain on the parade. In his last year in 1997, he had a really hot start, but looked mortal towards the end. I figured he'd keep up with Kovalev, who was looking like their best player (and I think their leading scorer at the time of Lemieux's debut), but I didn't think he'd become the best player in hockey again - with all due respect to Joe Sakic.
